Endocrine Disruptors

Hand sanitizers just came to mind, as it's the season. Be very careful about these as the chemicals in them can cause more harm than good.

This article is not just about pregnant women, we ALL have these chemicals. It's just where my excerpts started so do not disregard if not pregnant.

Contaminating Our Bodies With Everyday Products

- By Nicholas Kristof - The New York Times, Sunday Review - Nov. 28, 2015

Excerpts:

. . . virtually every pregnant woman in America has at least 43 different chemical contaminants in her body. . . .

. . . “Emerging evidence ties endocrine-disrupting chemical exposure to two of the biggest public health threats facing society — diabetes and obesity,” the Endocrine Society said in announcing its 150-page “scientific statement.” It added that “mounting evidence” also ties endocrine disrupters to . . . .

. . . Of the 80,000 or more chemicals in global commerce today, only a tiny share have been rigorously screened for safety. Even when a substance is retired because of health concerns, the replacement chemical may be just as bad. . . .

. . . The chemical lobby spent the equivalent of $121,000 per member of Congress last year, so expect chemical companies to enjoy strong quarterly profits, more boys to be born with hypospadias and more women to die unnecessarily of breast cancer. . . .

. . . For now, experts say the best approach is for people to try to protect themselves. . . . try to eat organic,

reduce the use of plastics, touch cash register receipts as little as possible, try to avoid flame-retardant couches and consult the consumer guides at www.ewg.org [Environmental Working Group] . . . .

@ Keebler ... thx for sharing that post !
For me working on adrenals seemed to work best for improving sleep , still not great , but better .
My cortisol levels were way too high in the pm ... I have tried all kinds of sleep supplements over the years , natural & not & did not want to become addicted to the not natural ones so quit them. after a week or so of tossing & turning I started a tincture called " Adrenal Support " by Herb Pharm which I buy from Vitacost ... seems to help me stay calm during the day & sleep better @ night . Everyone is different but this works for me for what it is worth.

The Amazing Hour.
